Me & My Muse – Day 34: Dream On

Whew!  That was a relief.  To begin, I can’t tell you how grateful I am to be in my own body again.

To get out of my Muse, let me tell you, it wasn’t easy.  Once I knew what to do, I cringed at the idea of doing it.  I made myself throw up, causing my Muse to vomit me onto the ground.

From there, getting her back in my head was an ordeal.  First, I had to persuade her to shrink down to normal size.  This took forever.  Once she was her normal size, the rest was easy.

From that experience yesterday, I hope I never have to relive any of that again.  If only all of it could’ve been a dream….

That brings me to today’s discussion about dreams.

Dreams.  This is one of my favorite things to talk about.  Whenever I go to sleep, chances are I’ll have a dream of some sort.  I’m sure that some of you have had dreams too, but some of you can’t remember them.  For those of you who do, some of them can be pretty interesting sometimes….


Muse:  Owwie!  My butt still hurts from last night….

Well, you were a bad Muse last night and you didn’t mind.

Muse:  Well, you didn’t have to hit me that hard….Ow….

Can you get dressed?  You’re still in your pajamas and you haven’t showered yet.

Muse: Well, you’re still in YOUR PAJAMAS!

Well they don’t need to know that.

Muse:  Well, now they do!  Tee hee!

Okay.  Moving on, I was talking about….

Muse:  I loved being a big girl yesterday.  It was FUN!

Excuse me.  You interrupted me.  How about some manners?

Muse:  But it was fun being grown up yesterday!

And what I saw yesterday was physically impossible.  You mention how you love Tangible rules.  You know about the square-cube law, right?

Muse:  Tee hee!  Of course!  And I didn’t use your stupid Tangible rule because of that.  As I grew in size, my volume increased faster than my area.  At every moment my size doubled, I was eight times heavier.  If I were to use your stupid rule,  each step I would take would cause my legs to fall off.  Not to mention, I would have trouble breathing and having the blood circulation necessary to travel all around my giant body.  Being Intangible, I remained weightless and completely immune to your laws of physics.  Therefore, that law didn’t apply to me.  In your face, square-cube law!

I am….impressed.  I didn’t expect something like that to come from y….

Muse:  What?  You didn’t expect a stupid Muse like me to experience a short burst of intuitive knowledge every now and then?  I may be just a girl, but I’m not stupid!

You’re a WOMAN.

Muse:  I’m a girl!  I hate being an adult!  Adults are boring so I don’t want to be one anymore!

Fine then, Little Miss Muse….

Muse:  Tee hee!  I actually like that name!  Say it again!

I am not going to.

Muse:  Come on!  Please please please please pleeease!

Alright, Little Miss Muse.  Can we get back on track?

Muse:  Yay!  You said it!  So whatcha talking about?  Oh yeah, the title….Dreams?  Tee hee.  I love dreams….

I had a very plain one last night.  I dreamt that my brother was mowing the lawn, and that’s what he’s doing right now.

Muse:  Well, adults have boring dreams.  Not like ME!  Wanna know what I dreamt about?  Ask me!  Ask me!

What did you dream about?

Muse:  I dreamt of seeing the biggest ice cream cone in the world!  There was a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream.  It was so big that it looked like a mountain, so I flew into it and crawled up the top.  But before I could even eat it, I woke up!  Stupid dream!

Sometimes, we wake up during the exciting parts.  I hate it when that happens.

Muse:  It probably never happened with you, since you never have any fun dreams!

Oh yeah?  What about the dream I had on May 19th?  I dreamt that I was rich and I owned a 26 story tall mansion.  The mansion had its own shopping mall in the lobby.  But being rich and owning huge mansions is boring, right?

Muse:  Oh yeah.  I forgot that you told me that one….

I also like “dream” related songs.  Like “Dream On” by Aerosmith.  Dream on, dream on Dream on, dream on Dream on, dream on Dream on, oh…..

Muse:  Dream a dream, lover, take me in your dream.  Take me anywhere you please, boy, you’re making me scream!

I also like  “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” by the Eurythmics.  Sweet dreams are made of this.  Who am I to disagree?  I travel the world and the seven seas.  Everybody’s looking for something….

Muse:  Dream a dream, lover.  Love is just a dream.  If you wanna set me free, boy you’re making me scream!

Some of them want to use you.  Some of them want to get used by you.  Some of them want to abuse you.  Some of them want to be abused….

Muse:  Ooh, la la, di, la da da. Take me anywhere you please, boy you’re making me scream!

Okay,  I’m done.

Muse:  Ooh, la la, di, la da da. You’ve gotta dream a little dream.  Tee hee!  I’m done too.

So are you going to get ready for the day?  It’s after noon already.

Muse:  Not yet.  I want to have that dream again and eat the giant ice cream cone!  Giant ice cream, here I come!  You’re gonna die….


I better hide my ice cream from her, if I don’t want her to kill it.

In closing up the discussion, dreams are one of my favorite things to think about.  So much so that I keep a record of them everyday.

Today’s high is going to be 77 degrees.  The Silver Lining will be picking up Mario & Luigi: Dream Team at the mall and making more progress on my story.

To all of you who like dreams as much as I do, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Mmm mmm!  I did it!  Time for seconds!  Tee hee….
